Good basic GPS

onditquoi, Ebay
8 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this because the original one that I had broke. It is a good basic GPS and it gets me everywhere I need to be. It is very easy to use and is quite reliable. I would highly recommend this GPS based on the reasonable price and its simple functions. It does not have all the add-on features as the more expensive models, but if all you need is accurate directions, this is certainly the way to go.

"Used different GPS over the years & 3100 is good."

  • Pros: It's simple easy to direct & re-direct. If you leave the path it will give you a few chances to return to the original course then plot a new one. More complex units tend to default out after the second or third; if you live in Atlanta that won't do.
  • Cons: Slow start up, old software, and way to expensive to update. And if you live in Atlanta you definitely need to get the new streets and street changes.

Affordable GPS Without alot of Bells and Whistles

naples_auctions, Ebay
3 April 2009
  • Summary: Nice unit for the money. Get's you from Point A to B with adjustable settings. Nice full color touch screen makes it easy to navigate through the menus. Right turn left turn guidance without street names. Not particularly excited about that. Need to be careful when routing a trip. This unit has taken me well out of my way when not necessary. Settings will correct this.

"Great GPS Unit"

transplanted_midwesterner, CNET
12 February 2009
  • Pros: I really like this - the audio at exactly when I should be turning the wheel is perfect, and it warns at just the right time prior to a turn. It's not an annoying repetitive nag the way another product I've tried is.
  • Cons: I find that when it is really cold, the unit will not attach to the disc on the dash. A couple times it has sent me in a longer path than it should have for "shortest distance."

Very Accurate - Missing some Features

preacherman808, Ebay
15 July 2008
  • Summary: Bought this as a replacement for a stolen Mio 230. The Plus Side - Maps are FAR more accurate and unlike the Mio this does not go crazy when you leave a mapped road. The Mio forces your icon onto the nearest road and/or keeps resetting, this just keeps track of where you are. The Satellite signals are 100 times better. On the Mio I would be lucky to get 5 signals outdoors on a clear day. On this unit I can get 7 sitting in my living room on a stormy day.

I never get lost any more...

Overstock
24 June 2008
  • Summary: So far it has taken me awhile to get the hang of this new toy, but I have yet to get lost again. It definitely comes in handy for traveling. It could have more on it for the cost, but I can't say I am unhappy.
